5 River Oaks Boutiques for Last-Minute Holiday Shopping

Dec 16th, 2015

The gift-giving season is upon is. If you haven’t bought presents for everyone on your list and you live in a River Oaks apartment, here are some nearby boutiques that just might have what you’re looking for.


The selection of clothes and accessories at this River Oaks boutique is dominated by cutting-edge fashion. Trendy rompers, skirts, dresses, handbags, and tops line the racks. The boutique’s two-story layout resembles that of a quaint house, and is less than 15 minutes from AMLI River Oaks, AMLI City Vista and AMLI Memorial Heights. Baanou offers one of many high-end shopping experiences that can be had at the luxurious and new River Oaks District shopping center on Westheimer.


Specializing in women’s clothing, accessories, and jewelry, bevello has an extensive selection of designer brands and independently designed and manufactured clothes. Most shoppers are impressed by the fair prices, and the staff has a reputation for being friendly and helpful. This Houston boutique has a few locations, but the one at the River Oaks Shopping Center is just a three-minute drive from AMLI River Oaks.

Cotton Club Collection

This high-end Houston boutique is best known for jeans and jewelry. Porto, Majestic, Joe’s Jeans, Planet, and Equestrian are some of the designers you’ll find represented in Cotton Club’s selection. In the jewelry department, Sethi Couture, Todd Reed, Mizuki, and Molinari are among the dozen plus designer jewelers featured. The boutique, open from 10 AM to 6 PM, Tuesday through Saturday, is a ten-minute drive from AMLI River Oaks.

Itsy Bitsy Baby

Are you shopping for a newborn or toddler? For a selection that’s anything but run-of-the-mill, stop by the Itsy Bitsy Boutique on Westheimer between Ferndale and Virginia. You’ll find traditional, vintage, and trendsetting styles in the boutique’s well-curated selection. Susan Rice Watt, the store’s owner, had a successful stint as a designer and merchandiser for Baby Gap and Gap Kids before opening the Itsy Bitsy Baby Boutique in 2009. This charming home for baby apparel is less than ten minutes from AMLI River Oaks.


Down the street from AMLI River Oaks, WARDROBE is a lovely boutique where you can find cutting-edge attire from Armour Vert, Catherine Page, Cleobella, Kas New York, Nation LTD, Siwy Denim, and other designer labels.

Living in one of Houston’s River Oaks apartments, you’re close to dozens of well-run, well-stocked boutiques where you can find original and fashionable apparel and designer jewelry. Keep these boutiques in mind as you tackle your holiday shopping.
